    In addition to the current divestments, the Department of Treasury will continue working with the relevant government agencies to progress further investigation of divestment options for:

    • ­ a portfolio of Government Regional Officer Housing stock; ­
    • part of Keystart’s loan book (further information); and ­
    • various Government-owned office buildings.
